world. and obviously a lot could have m happened and the rest of the world would have seen it. it's impossible, even with all the restrictions that are being applied by the gadhafi regime, it's impossible for people to see it. and the pressure would have mounted on the international community to intervene. and if we didn't, we would have failed the people of libya, but more importantly, you know, it's not just certainly a moral issue for the international community and was done right because it was through the u.n. with support from the arab league, with arab public opinion largely supportive of this intervention. so in that sense, it was done right. you know, if we hadn't intervened, you could imagine also some consequences for america's national interests. people talk about, you know, what's the american national interest in libya. well, it's not just libya, you know, it's a movement that is sweeping the entire region. it's being watched not just by libyans, it's being watched by egyptians by tunisians.
